I tried to change my value and my screen just blacked out. Better to be left alone I guess. ;)
I have another machine running Debian 9, bl_power value is also set to 0 and running fine. I won't touch it :lol:

Re: Very dark screen brightness on Mint 19

/sys/class/backlight/ideapad/bl_power:0 looks weird. It's not at 0 for my screen at least. Otherwise might be a color correction setting. At least redshift and colord (colormgr) are installed by default. What would be your value for bl_power? I could try to increase the value and see the results. M...

Re: Very dark screen brightness on Mint 19

If your Fn+ key combos don't work you can set backlight brightness to max like this: sudo cp /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/max_brightness /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness This resets display server brightness (change eDP-1 to the name of your display, if necessary): xrandr --o...

Re: Can't type non-English characters in certain places

Hi, you might have tried it already but let's see. When you open the Language window you have the option to choose Language and Locale, after that, have you clicked on the button to make it apply to the entire system?
